On January 1, 2020, new federal legislation (referred to as Bill C-92) came into force, affirming the right of First Nations to develop their own specific child and family services legislation.
In the last year, Peguis Child and Family Services (PCFS), in conjunction with Peguis First Nation, has been developing draft legislation, that will be reviewed by community members.
This draft legislation, called the Honouring our Children, Families and Nation Act has recently been completed and Peguis First Nation and PCFS representatives are now ready to share the document with the community and public.
We are pleased to invite you to join in this historic event as Peguis First Nation celebrates on March 2, from10:30am to 1:00pm.
